On Sunday, September 10, get to know the North Fork artisanal food, wine and beer scene a little better when the 11th Annual North Fork Foodie Tour, presented by North Fork Reform Synagogue, returns to highlight the area's bounty.
"One of the reasons we are so proud of the North Fork Foodie Tour is that this is our opportunity to give back to our community by supporting the farmers and food producers whose hard work and creativity are building on the North Fork's agricultural and maritime heritage, helping to preserve its unique character while enriching it with their wide variety of products," shared Kay Freeman, North Fork Foodie Tour Co-chair. "It also gives us an opportunity to educate the public about where their food comes from and the love and effort it takes to bring it to their tables. And, it's so much fun for those who attend!!"
This year's event will take attendees on an excursion that will highlight 20 North Fork locales, showcasing a diverse variety of local food and beverage producers that are based in Southold, Peconic, Cutchogue, Mattituck, Riverhead, Jamesport, and Eastport. The self-guided tour offers a behind-the-scenes look at East End farms and other establishments.

"The Foodie Tour organized by the North Fork Reform Synagogue each year provides a wonderful opportunity to meet the women and men growing and producing food and beverages on Long Island - in the fields and at their stands," shared Denise Markut, North Fork Stewardship Manager, Peconic Land Trust. "The Trust is thrilled to once again share our Agricultural Center as a welcome area for tour participants and we look forward to sharing the story of the center and our work with local farmers to all who stop by."
